Sample rates

When should we use them?

What is the purpose of higher sample rates (eg 88khz) in
default N-track compositions?

Can we use higher rates than 44 khz in 16 bit recordings?

If my system is 24 bit is a higher rate better and will N-track burn the mixdown at a higher rate?

  1. Big topic. May I suggest Google first?

    2. Sure you can. (In most DAW software… I assume you can in n-Track)

    3. N should mixdown whatever sample rate and bit depth supported. Check the manual?

    However, you mentioned ‘burn’… an audio CD must be 16/44.1 to play in standard players. Audio for DVD is usually 24/48. Again, I suggest Google…

Aha! That answers a lot. Thanks, I’ll check Google too.

During mixing, higher rates reduce distortion from eq, compression… so the final mix is as good as it can be. Cheers

This is a great topic for discussion…

Anyone in the Audio/DAW business should be aware and have the highest level of knowledge in-and-around their setups, to utilize the best possible return(s) from their equipment…

Without this basic knowledge it’s far to easy to over-extend their setup’s resources and not even see their projects, through to completion…


It’s too easy to complain that their DAW/Setup-and-Editor Combination is not working properly than to understand why they have reached their Setup’s Resource Limitations…
Well…
